Clear Blue Skies In Wa State?!?!

Today's Workout:

6 Mile Run 10 to 11 Min Mile Pace

I need to get back into the routine of blogging. I was looking through my previous posts and it makes me miss it, blogging that is. Currently I am training for Big Sur; marathon number two. I'm kind of disappointed that I didn't blog during this training cycle. Now I am in the taper phase of my training. Big Sur is just 16 days and 9 hrs away!!! I'll be running in it with one of my best friends that I have known since 1994 or 1995. Can't wait to run across that finish line. Anyway, the last few weeks I have been having some knee pain during my runs. More like excruciating pain :( It starts hurting somewhere around mile 3 in to my runs. I went ahead and gave my self a self diagnoses that I strained my lateral collateral ligament on my left knee. I took a week off from running last week, been icing my knee, started taking some glucose-mine, and using the good ole foam roller. This week I've been running every other day to give my knee rest in between runs. TODAY though my knee didn't hurt at all during my 6 mile run; thanks to Bayer. LOL I kept the pace between a 10 to 11 min mile, gotta keep things slow and easy till marathon day. My only goal is to finish the marathon.

Here are some pictures from today's run. I live in the wettest state in the country, WA state; go figure. This morning we were lucky to have clear blue skies!!! I had to take advantage of it :)


  1. I'm glad you're back to blogging! I missed your posts. :)

  2. We finally have some sunshine here in VT too. It was a cloudy rainy week!!
